Home Routing Info

 

Dear Customer / TSP’s,

Every Cycle and with every update/change in between NAS is distributing these to the port agencies and TSP’s but we feel this is somehow not always reaching all people involved on the operational level so I would like to reconfirm these hereby again from Govlog for the European ports. Please do pass them on to all your employees that matter as misrouting/misconsignment often results in delays and extra charges.

 

 

1.  Shipments to Belgium/Netherlands/Germany/Hungary/Romania & Poland  when coming from a US port via the North-Atlantic

2. To Belgium/Netherlands/Germany coming in from the Far East direct ex Busan, Yokohama or Naha

3. Shipments to Italy North / South

4. Shipments to Italy when coming in from the Far East direct ex Busan, Yokohama or Naha

5. Shipments to Turkey wherever they are coming from (CONUS and Far East) regardless the ocean contract

6. Shipments to Bahrain

7. Shipments to Norway

8. UAB to Brussels Airport

 

1.  Shipments to Belgium/Netherlands/Germany/Hungary/Romania & Poland when coming from a US port via the North-Atlantic

 

Make sure to tell your US port agent to use NAS containers as first and preferable option, for reason of consolidation issues or different landed rates, shipments can be booked in Pasha containers or on the ARC service.
Pasha has a list of the customers we represent where the shipments are moving under our landed rates and will bill the ocean to Govlog just like NAS is doing. Under no circumstances should you be paying any ocean services directly to Pasha on shipments that are moving under landed rates agreed upon with Govlog.
These shipments need to go all to the GCT terminal in Deurne from where we distribute in land. It is the cheapest, fastest and nearest option and our landed rates with you are based upon the usage of this channel.

Important remarks regarding port of discharge ≠ place of delivery:

MAERSK LINE:  TA1 Service Full USF  / TA2 Service Bi-Weekly USF

Port of discharge = Antwerp

Place of delivery = Deurne
 

HAPAG LLOYD: AX3 Service Full USF

Port of discharge = Antwerp

Place of delivery = Deurne

 

Alternate option is Bremerhaven that can be used only when there are consolidation issues, this can be considered for containerized shipments but depending on the final destination often a surcharge for the extra line haul cost will be involved that are not included in the landed rates.

There are a couple of exceptional destinations in Northern Germany that we want you to ship to Bremerhaven exclusively, it happens very seldom, but if block 18 is showing following places we will ask you to route the shipment to Bremerhaven.
Bremerhaven – Hamburg – Eckenfoerde – Wilhelmshaven – Kiel – Flensburg

If you are in doubt or want to route anything to Bremerhaven that is not on this list our office needs to be contacted for approval at inbound@govlog.be.

Consignment for shipments to Bremerhaven would be as follows:

General Instructions

 

Do not mix Northern and Southern Italy freight in the same container or otherwise the TSP will be charged back for extra line haul and do not load less than 1900 CUFT in each container without checking and confirmation. Equipment: 45ft containers with Maersk for Italy are possible.

 

Motorcycles Northern Italy

Please note that customs in Italy added a new extra requirement for the clearance of motorcycles and this only for the ones under destination gblock WKAS going to Vicenza and Livorno area.

This was communicated to WKAS and SDDC and they added the requirement to the PPCIG; see statement in bold print: A COPY OF THE ORDERS MUST BE IN THE ADVANCED PACKAGE TO THE TSP, OTHERWISE THE MOTORCYCLE CANNOT BE CUSTOM CLEARED.

Please make sure to check with your origin agent that they receive this from the origin TMO prior to move the motorcycle with the shipment, and double check with your origin port agents that this is all available prior to ocean shipping. In order to avoid delays and extra charges in Italy, we will need it together with the shipment documentation such as gbl, weight ticket, inventories, etc. and the already required motorcycle documentation for Italy.

Click here for the extract from PPCIG for Italy/motorcycles.
 


Motorcycles Southern Italy

 

If your shipment contains a motorcycle, it MUST be listed on the GBL and the OBL by make, model and serial number/VIN number. Please make sure to include a clear copy of the title and registration in order to clear customs at destination.

Please be advised that due to a change in place of customs clearance in Southern Italy, the following must be strictly adhered to, in order to prevent delay in movement of freight upon arrival in Italy:

1. Italian customs requires a clear and valid title with a legible name of the service member, VIN # and make and model of the motorcycle.

2. In the case where there is a bank lien statement in lieu of a title, the statement must also be legible and must clearly state the name of the owner of the motorcycle, which must be the same as the name of the service member listed on the OBL/GBL, along with a clear VIN #, make and model of the motorcycle.

3. In both instances, a clear and valid registration (not expired) is also required to accompany either the title or bank lien document.

4. In the absence of a title or bank lien, the customs broker will attempt to use only a clear and valid registration as an alternative document, but this should be attempted in only rare and justified situations and will be subject to the ultimate decision of the Customs officer who handles that particular case.

 

Privately owned firearms to Italy

Shipping of any kind of weapon is prohibited. The Italian Government has imposed a ban on shipment of privately owned firearms to Italy. POF includes any weapons that is designed for or can be readily converted to be used for attack, defense, sports, games or hunting by driving a projectile through the barrel. This includes air pistols, air rifles and firing replicas of antique firearms. Additionally, it includes spring-opening knives, fixed bowie knives, straight-edge razors, brass knuckles, blackjack devices, cans with sharpened points, pipes, chains, slings, metal spheres, and any other like weapon which may be used for offending a person is forbidden. Italian law states that pocket knives may be carried, but the blade must not exceed two inches in length.

We suggest to screen the IT/SIC GBL’s to avoid firearms being loaded; if you discover firearms in the shipment please contact the TSP to have it removed hence avoiding costly procedures at destination and possible large fines. Please let us know if you have any questions.

 

 

4. shipments to Italy when coming in from the Far East direct ex Busan, Yokohama or Naha

 

4.1 Shipments destined for Italy North & Italy South (LCL)

Very important is that Deurne always needs to be mentioned on the ocean bill of lading as final place of delivery to avoid extra local drayage charges that are not part of our intra-theatre rates.

Accordingly, they ARE NOT authorized POV storage during their tour. Personnel assigned to Eskisehir, Turkey ARE NOT authorized shipment of a POV.

8. UAB to Brussels Airport

 

1. In order to ensure fast handling at the airport, please make sure to send us a copy of your airwaybill as a pre-arrival notice, so we can follow up from our end.
Many of these air shipments are being traced, so it will assist us on quickly answering any of the queries from the transportation office, other government representatives & the members themselves (as they contact us when they see Govlog is indicated as destination agent in DPS)


Shipments must be consigned as follows:

Consignee:
Gosselin Forwarding Services NV
Bedrijvenzone Machelen Cargo
Building 734
1830 Machelen

Notify on Arrival: Koen van Meenen tel: +32 2 752 21 53


2. Shipments must be on a Master Airwaybill with the airline you are using and directly consigned to Gosselin Forwarding Services NV. If shipments are arriving via a consolidator, we’re always paying a very high handover charge, which we will have to bill you as per outlay, since these charges are not included in our normal quoted rates to you.

3. Try not to send shipments with UPS & DHL to avoid these charges and delays. Shipments are often split and being kept in storage until they are complete. They don’t arrive directly at Brucargo and need to be hauled from a separate terminal in Diegem which requires an additional customs expense as well. These extra’s will be billed separately above the given quotes.

4. Try to book on flights that arrive beginning or mid-week, which also avoids shipments being delayed and charged extra for weekend storage. If they do arrived during the weekend, they’re automatically place into a customs bonded warehouse for which rent & warehouse handling will be charged.
